Gary Clark Jr


I interviewed Gary Clark Jr for this piece (my second feature on him) last fall. As a rule, I prefer to present my subjects in their own words. That was not possible in this instance, as Mr Clark was not the most loquacious person I have profiled. I think that, in addition to a natural shyness, he was worn out from a busy press and performance schedule. Fortunately, I had followed Gary’s career practically from the beginning, and was able to fill in many of the blanks in his story for our readers. I hope that you will forgive my obvious authorial presence and enjoy reading about Gary Clark Jr.

This was the cover story in what seems to be the final issue of Blues Revue. To learn more about, and subscribe to, its excellent replacement, Blues Music Magazine, please visit
